On ABC radio a few days ago I heard this story that I just had to write about – let me quote the juiciest part of it:
Mr Andrews said Dr Haneef still failed the character test under which the visa was originally cancelled.
“The basis upon which Dr Haneef’s visa was cancelled remains vaild,” he told Channel Seven on Sunday morning.
“His lawyers indicated to my department … that he wanted to get out of Australia as soon as possible. If anything that rather heightens, rather than lessens, my suspicions.”
How fortunate that most of us aren’t subject to Andrews’ suspicions!
